Pool lovers rejoice as spring finally hits and the mercury begins to rise. Soon enough, it’s pool season! That means days and nights of lounging and relaxing in your backyard pool – maybe sipping on a cool cocktail to truly give you that tropical feeling.
However, getting your pool ready for the summer isn’t like switching on a light switch (but that does play a big part!). In addition to making sure your pool is thoroughly cleaned, has the right pH balance and the heating system is keeping temperatures at just the right levels, it’s important to ensure your pool lighting system is functioning without fail.
Does Your Home Pool Lighting System Need an Upgrade?
Here’s a quick self-assessment you can use to figure out whether or not you need to upgrade your pool lighting system:
- Does your electricity bill spike when your pool is in use?
- Do you want a safe outdoor environment?
- Do you plan on using your pool at night?
- Do you want to create an exceptional swimming experience?
- Do you want to make your neighbors jealous at how beautiful your pool is?
If you answer “yes” to any of these, then it’s likely you’ll need an update.
What Should You Consider?
When people thought about lighting up their swimming pools in the past, it was common practice to simply put a light in the deep end and another in the shallow end. Times have changed. Nowadays, people are able to add lighting to their pools that accentuate the unique shape and designs – especially if they are customized with waterfalls and other landscaping modifications.
Nite Time Decor offers the Weathered Brass Underwater Light, which uses fully submersible LED lamps and is ideal for lighting waterfalls, ponds, and other water features.
In addition, it’s smart to include your deck, pathways, outdoor dining areas and plant life in your pool lighting plan to ensure you’re making the most of your backyard space.
Why Choose LED Lighting?
With pool lighting in particular, there was once a time when halogen lights were the only viable option. Nowadays, there are LED lamps and fiber optic lights that can transform your pool and outdoor space. LED lighting is a great option for those who want to ensure not only long-lasting quality but also energy efficiency.
According to Improvenet.com, LEDs typically use 80 percent less energy than halogen bulbs and can last for up to 15 years. At the same time, Nite Time Decor LEDs are guaranteed with a 7-year warranty, so you have a lighting system that’s not only better for the environment but your bank account as well. On top of that, LEDs are easily customizable with different colors to set the right mood and atmosphere for your pool.
